Today is a happy day for me – for two reasons…
One … It’s my 17th wedding anniversary, and we both still do…want to be together ’til death do us part.
Two … I weigh the same as I did on my wedding day and fit back in my wedding dress. 🙂
The first year I was married I gained 30 pounds and for all but one year I stayed very overweight. My husband never loved me any different, I gave birth to healthy twins and a healthy baby almost three years later and I’ve been blessed beyond measure with friends and happy times; but I never got control of my eating or was active.
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time you know that has changed. And now, eleven years since the last time I was this size I know there is hope that I’ll never be very overweight again.
And that makes for one happy married lady!
By the way, my girls knew I was going to do this post (Twin B had to do photography..) and as we were getting busy this weekend I said, “I don’t know if I’ll have time to get my dress out. I’ll just do it next year.”
Well, Twin A replied, “No. You need to do it this year, Mom, because next year you’ll be much smaller and it will be too big!”
Awww….such faith they have in their mom. Love those girls!!
Motivation?? Yes!! Both the faith of my kids in my abilities and knowing that if I was finally able to get back into this dress after thinking I’d always be the “fat mom”, then anything is possible. 🙂
